Events and meetups are great opportunities to network and get in touch with other TYPO3 professionals. The last quarter of 2018 is also important because the TYPO3 community is releasing the next major Long Term Support (LTS) version 9 on October 2nd.

TYPO3 CMS v9 LTS is coming out on October 2, 2018! And the best way to celebrate is with a release party.
These events are hosted at agency offices, where people can gather around for chat, to learn about new features, and share some insights about the next release. This is a great way to show off the features of the next release to colleagues and clients.
There’s three planned for Germany, and one each in India, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden. At the time of writing, that’s a total of 8 parties. For TYPO3 v8 LTS there were 30 Release Parties! So we’re guessing a few of you are planning your parties, but haven’t told anyone just yet. You have a few weeks to get your invitations out and your decorations up.
1. First, plan your event.
What date and time? The release is on a Tuesday which might not be your party day.
Where will it be?
How can people RSVP? Set up a Meetup event, a Facebook event, or ask people to RSVP via Twitter.
2. Next, list it on the wiki page.
